CPE210 for garden with 20x20m
Hardware Version :
Firmware Version :
ISP : [/COLOR]
I would like to use the CPE210 in order to have better WLAN signal in my garden.
For this I would connect the CPE210 to a already existing LAN cable which is connected to my working LAN (with DHCP, etc.) in my house.
If I understood everything right I need to select the Access Point option when I set the CPE210 up for the first time.
1. Did I get this right: I get a POE adapter together with the CPE210. The POE adapter is plugged to the power on one side and to the LAN (coming from my house) on the other side. Additionally to that I connect the other RJ45 interface on the POE adapter to the CPE210.
2. The CPE210 has to RJ45 interfaces. One for the connection POE adapter <-> CPE210. What can I do with the second RJ45 interface? Can I connect i.e. a TV with LAN interface to this RJ45 interface?
3. The area in my garden has 20x20m. I can imagine that a CPE210 is not the perfect device to cover such a spot because of the directional antennas but I think it should be okay (can not find a better device).
1 & 2: right. Second interface can be used for wired devices, correct.

Thanks R1D2. The EAP110-Outddor looks good. Unfortunately it has only 1 RJ45 interface.
But I think thats not a problem, I can use a switch here.
Yes, it has only one Ethernet port. But to connect a switch to it, you would have to use the Ethernet port at the PoE injector labeled LAN, not the PoE line.
